EDU 377 Educating Children in Poverty: South East Asia
Dr. Marie White


This Global Service-Learning trip will provide students with heartwarming experiences centered around the G1:27 children's ministry founded and directed by our alumni in Nangka, Philippines.   Students will have the opportunities to investigate the life of children who live in extreme poverty. The focus will be on the nature and consequences of poverty, the societal and global responses to poverty, and the coping methods of people in the community.  Through their service learning activities, students will participate in developing resiliency among the children in the community. Students will also visit government and non-government organizations that deal with social issues originating from poverty, such as human trafficking, street children, and crime.
